Student Records-Transfer Credit
Transfer evaluations are completed in the office of Advising and Counseling. The academic credits earned in a student's chosen academic program will be accepted from institutions of higher education when the course content and teaching faculty can reasonably be assumed or determined to be equal to that at Southwest. Only the courses, credits and grades applicable to the student's academic program at Southwest will be accepted. Once the credit becomes a part of the student's official record at Southwest, it will not be removed. Transfer credit hours and grades will be used when calculating the cumulative grade point average. The maximum number of credit hours acceptable in transfer towards a student's academic program is two-thirds of the required program credit hours. The maximum number includes credit hours for alternative forms of credit (see Alternative Credit). Only courses for which the student has earned a grade of "C" or better will be considered for evaluation and acceptance at Southwest with one exception.
Exception: Students who attended Shelby State Community College or State Technical Institute at Memphis may request that courses completed with grades of "D", are accepted to meet requirements for graduation.
